in monrewl canada has been speaking to a group and advocating very strongly that 190 countries take the next store up in airport screening by advocating the use of these full body scanners. in an interview with usa today she said we need to move to the next stage of screenings. there continues to be a threat stream about taking down a commercial airliner in part because it was used successfully before and could have a huge impact. just to give you context here. if there is a piece of advice i've had over the years it's like terrorism is like water it takes the path of least resistance and we are dealing with a thinking enemy. they understand the type of improvements we've made for the screening process, that's why we saw the evolution in the type of attack with the attempted bombing on christmas day, with the underwear -- with the bomb concealed in the underwear. that is an evolution in the tactic and it's also an indicator that when it comes to airline security al-qaida and others are watching what we are doing, they are trying to take steps to circumvent that security which is why the secr

study out of canada found women are quicker with an apology than men but not for the reasons you might think. the fascinating part of the study is that they actually showed just random scenarios and of those scenarios, women perceived more of them needing an apology. so, it's not that men don't want to apologize, it's just that they look at a situation, they don't see it as apology-worthy, whereas women do. >> reporter: hear that, ladies? it's not that your man atrade to poll geez, he just doesn't know when he needs to. >> women are a lot more considerate than men. they are always worried about offending their friends or their significant others so they're much more apt to apologize for things that would never bother a guy. >> reporter: you are apologizing because you mean it or to placate her? >> because i mean it. >> reporter: while it may be difficult for men to realize they're in the wrong, getting into the right is actually pretty easy. >> some men don't apologize enough. i don't see what the big deal is. if it is going to quell a situation and make everything okay, just say those
